Description

The Tillamook Burn was a series of forest fires occurring at approximately six-year intervals between 1933 and 1951. The fires destroyed 355,000 acres of old growth timber in what is now the Tillamook State Forest. At the time of the fires, the majority of timberland belonged to private timber companies.

The CCC was instrumental both in fighting the fires in the early 1930s and in replanting much of the area destroyed by the burn.
